CASPER, Wyo. — Wyoming’s first surgical abortion clinic will be opening on Second Street in Casper this summer, according to Circle of Hope Director Julie Burkhart.
The nonprofit says its goal is to provide the service in areas termed “abortion deserts,” where access its extremely limited. Women in Wyoming have the option of obtaining a medical abortion, but only up until the 10th week of pregnancy.
“At 10 weeks, some women are just finding out they are pregnant,” the group says. “So, in essence, very few women can actually end a pregnancy in Wyoming.”
